IT'S NOT MR. ROGER'S TROLLEY

I'd like to share with you a recent find of mine of which I toiled over as to purchase or not.  Here is a very old battery operated pressed steel trolley.  Yes, the old gals seen better days, but she's not all in that bad of shape.  Her innards have been removed, she's lost her luster and basically left to rest on wooden blocks.  Ah ha!, but alas, allow for one who has the talent and the skills to renovate her.  To bring new life and purpose to.  To transform this nicely rust coated piece of steel into something utilitarian.  Perhaps a lamp?  Mailbox?  With a world full of wonderful artisans one could not help but to imagine what lovely conversation piece she could be reincarnated into?








Imagine for one moment if you will...













A mantel lamp...










Perhaps a walkway lamp...












A deck lamp.....









The possibilities are endless and only goes to show that true vintigicity 
is NEVERTOOOLD to be appreciated.

Maybe a really cool outdoor lamppost!

I can envision it in a flower garden with ivy or flowers coming through the openings. Very cool find, Dave!

Thank you guys soooo much for the suggestions as both are equally great! I can envision both the garden ornament and the lamppost!! Sweet!!

That would be killer as a little lamp with a small 7 watt candlelight flicker bulb in it.... oooh the shadows!
